Thunder to sign former Baylor standout Adam Flagler to two-way contract

Former Baylor standout Adam Flagler will reportedly sign a two-way contract with the Oklahoma City Thunder, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Flagler, who went undrafted last year, has spent the season with the OKC Blue in the G League, averaging 12.9 points, 3.7 rebounds and three assists on 40.4% shooting from 3-point range in 15 games. He has scored in double figures 10 times, including three 20-point games.

The Thunder had an open two-way contract spot available after converting third-year guard Lindy Waters III to a standard contract on Friday. The team now has Flagler, Keyontae Johnson and Olivier Sarr signed to two-way contracts.

Flagler was a unanimous All-Big 12 first-team selection last season as a senior after averaging 15.6 points, 4.6 assists, 2.4 rebounds and 1.2 steals on 40% shooting from 3-point range. He finished second in the conference in assist-to-turnover ratio (2.7) and 3-point percentage.

He arrived at Baylor during the 2020-21 season and helped lead the team to the national title after transferring from Presbyterian. He finished 23rd on the career scoring list (1,181) at Baylor after three seasons, ninth in 3-pointers (201) and second in 3-point percentage (40.2).
